The Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee has scheduled the first in a series of hearings into New Jersey’s response to the storm today at the Toms River Municipal Complex. As reported in the Star Ledger, the committee will take testimony from invited mayors and other municipal officials from Bergen, Hudson, Monmouth and Ocean counties. Sen. Paul Sarlo, the committee chairman, said it’s too early to tell how Sandy will affect the state budget because lawmakers are trying to determine the full extent of the need.
